The C.B. Design 15x13mm 5-Spoke Racing Wheel shares all of the great features of other C.B. Design Wheels plus several new features based on requests and feedback from experienced 1:32 racers. These include:
- Widest 1:32 C.B. Design Wheel currently offered
- Double Center Rib design reduces wheel weight while increasing the wheel's surface area where it meets the tire by up to 15%. The increased surface area is important to racers who (optionally) glue tires to wheels for optimum performance.
- When using a spur gear, the spur gear’s hub increases the overall rear track width. This effectively limits your options for wheel/tire combinations that will fit under the body. Traditional 1:32 wheel designs (with hubs or hubless) do not take this into consideration (refer to Figure 1).
- C.B. Design's innovative Hidden HubTM design gives racers more flexibility when trying to fit the a wider wheel/tire combination under a car. The C.B. Design Hidden HubTM design gives racers the ability to nest the spur gear's hub inside the wheel freeing up about 1mm of space for the wheel/tire (refer to Figure 2).
High-performance wheels require high-performance tires. C.B. Design worked closely with Quick Slicks and Paul Gage Tires to ensure high-performance tires would be available for these wheels.
